Disable ClearType font smoothing in Vista

Vista fonts fuzzy blurry unclear! On all of my Vista installs I notice after about 2 hours of using them that I get a headache. I finally worked out it was the new way vista smoothes out fonts. Using the GUI to turn this feature off didn’t work on any of my computers so I found this registry hack. 1. Open Registry Editor 2. Navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Control Panel and Desktop. 3. Set FontSmoothingType to 1. 4. Set FontSmoothing to 1. 5. Reboot.
